Comment on London Undeground job losses on 11/03/2010
London TravelWatch has commented on London Underground's announcement of job losses.
Sharon Grant, Chair, London TravelWatch said: "This is a large number of posts to lose from the underground system, and it is fair to ask whether this can be achieved without passengers being affected. The public is concerned, for example, about there being a uniformed presence at stations, and that they are able to purchase tickets and Oyster top-ups conveniently.
"London Travelwatch will be asking detailed questions of London Underground about this announcement, with a view to ensuring that the passenger's experience and concerns are taken into account as posts are removed across the network."
